Mosa, Window of Visibility for Open Access Research in Belgium

A new tool is now live in the Belgian Open Access landscape: Mosa (https://www.mosa-research.be).

Mosa aims to highlight Open Access research produced by scholars from Belgian and Luxembourgish institutions. More than 10 repositories are daily harvested in Mosa. Interface is in Dutch, English (default), French and German.

Mosa currently contains more than 295,000 records in Open Access, but it also contains publications and communications with restricted access (intranet). Depending on the repositories, a Request a print option can help you to directly contact the author and ask for an electronic copy.

In total, there are a bit less than 600,000 records in Mosa, of which a majority of scholarly articles:

  • 328,000 scientific articles
  • 66,000 proceedings
  • 48,000 dissertations
  • 40,000 lectures and conference presentations
  • 36,000 book chapters
  • 16,000 reports
  • 7,000 working papers and preprints
  • 1,800 course materials

For compliance reasons, not all Belgian repositories could be added to Mosa. Hopefully, they can be added soon!
